About John Bayles

John Bayles (2) seems to have been much less adventurous than his father. It seems that he did not move to Jamaica with the rest of the family in 1661, as Oct. 4, 1662, he was still in Southold, where he signed a petition to Connecticut. [P & W 780 ]

He must have decided soon after to join the family, as May 12, 1664, he was made a Freeman of Connecticut in Jamaica. [Assembly Journal] Less than a year later he m. Ruth Rusco in Jamaica and thereafter seems to have lived out his life quietly in Jamaica. His name appears often in the Records as fence inspector, taxpayer, recipient of allotments of land and in various purchases and sales of property. He was a delegate to the Governor, Tax Assessor and contributor to the minister's salary. The evidence for his daughter Sarah is scanty, but seems conclusive. On Sept. 24, 1751, John Lake of Amwell, Hunterdon Co., N. J., made a will in which he referred to his wife Sarah and names as executors his wife and his brother-in-law Daniel Baley (Bailis).
